Perhaps you didn't find any other nodes as children of pca953x
There are other hog nodes in other types of GPIO controllers. Typically
they're named after the purpose, e.g. "wifi-disable", "i2c3_mux_oe_n",
"pcie_sata_switch", "lcd0_mux".

IMHO it's a hog if it contains a "gpio-hog" property, regardless of node

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
